The Empire of Zukaki is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 368 million Zukakians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merikh Strato. The average income tax rate is 26.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zukakian economy, worth 35.9 trillion Zukas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 97,630 Zukas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Zuka charge on their phone bill, the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and religious bigotry is not allowed but bigotry against theism is encouraged. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zukaki's national animal is the Zebu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zukaki is ranked 136,719th in the world and 57th in Ridgefield for Nudest, with 33 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
